Noise behind climate control

Hi All,

Finally took a used 2012 F10 528i home with me yesterday.

Got a question on a noise behind the climate control.

When I have the aircon on, after running for a few minutes, there is a constant *not clicking more like motor moving trying to shut a door sound coming from behind the climate control. If you have the radio on, you wouldn't hear it but it sounds like the action of a CD loading but constantly loading. (Grrr.... grr grr...) sounds more like a servo trying to close off a certain air vent behind without success and keeps trying!

The sound isn't loud but if you hear for it its noticeable.

Wondering if this is normal.

By the way the N20 engine is awesome!

Thanks in advance guys!
